17-year-old Desmond was found outside during the polar vortex. He is deaf, has slight vision issues and has had some kidney problems. His adopter Eileen has been taking such good care of him and sent this happy update. “Desmond is doing very good. He’s eating very well on his own and filling out a bit. In the morning he jumps up on my bed and is very vocal about me getting up to feed him. My vet is monitoring his levels of his kidney disease. Desmond will go back in 6 months for a recheck. I am giving him joint and hip supplement and he has progressed with that” There are some special people in the world, who take on hard to place animals, Eileen is certainly one of those people. Thank you Eileen!
